If you plan to participate in the County Photo contest, Willie MUST have your photos by 5:00 pm today.

Don't worry if you didn't finish in time to do the county competition, because you can still compete at District. :-) The deadline to enter the district competition is December 5th.

I hope that all of you have had fun taking photos, and have learned something about how to take better photos. I know I learn something new every year. ;-)

Would it be helpful if I had another class in November? I can try to squeeze one in, even if it is just something informal at my home. Would there be interest in that? Please, let me know.

Deadline Approaching!!

Just a reminder that the deadline to enter the county photography contest is NEXT Friday, October 31st. Willie must have your mounted photos, and negatives or CD, by 5:00 pm.

Remember, any photo taken since January '08 until now is acceptable.

Also, if you are interested in the photography contest, but county is too soon for you, you may still compete at the District level. The deadline for District is December 5th.

If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail me. :-)

Most importantly, HAVE FUN. ;-)

Eligible Photos

Hi, everyone :-)

One of the rules that I forget to stress to everyone is that your photos must have been taken this year. That means from January '08 until now, before the competition. That means if your child took a really cool picture of something while you were on summer vacation, it is eligible. :-)

This IS stated in the rules, but it is one of those things that we tend to skim over. :-) I just wanted to be sure to point it out to you. :-)

Photography Rules

Hi, Everyone :-)

The county website has been down for a couple of days, which would explain why you get an "object not found" page when you try to get the rules from the side bar.

SO, if you would like a copy of the rules, please e-mail me at and I will send them to you as a pdf file.

If you plan to be at the 4-H banquet on the 18th I would be happy to give them to you there. Just let me know. :-)

Class went great!! :-)

A very special "thank you" to Mr. Joe Daniels for teaching the photography class tonight. ;-) We learned a lot of great information.

For those of you who could not make it, don't worry; you can still get the rules off for county, district and the state rules from this blog. See the sidebar. :-)

Also, for some extra tips, please visit the KODAK website. There is a lot of great information there.

If you plan to participate at the county level, remember:

The deadline to have your photos in is OCTOBER 31st. Pictures must be given to Willie by 5:00 pm that day. Also, he will need a negative of the photo, or have a CD of all of your photos. You can also e-mail to him as an attachment. This is a MUST for you to participate.

You do NOT have to participate at the county level to participate at District. If you choose to participate at District, please follow the rules/guidelines for the District/State level.

The deadline to turn in your photos for District is DECEMBER 5th. I will be sending out a reminder before then.

I encourage you to get a copy of the rules and regulations and read them carefully. If you have any questions please to not hesitate to contact me. :-) My e-mail address is on the sidebar.

Thank you,
Wendy Emprimo
